Grandma’s Angels Holiday Luncheon To Ring In The Holiday Season

Committee chairs Manda Galin and Jodie Schmitz.

On Tuesday, Nov. 29, Grandma’s Place will hold its seventh annual Grandma’s Angels Holiday Luncheon at the Sailfish Club in Palm Beach. Jodie Schmitz and Manda Galin are once again co-chairing this event.

Herme De Wyman Miro is serving as the international honorary chair. Committee members include: Diana Berman, Kristi Bomar, Kelly Brenner, Jane Bruno, Susy Burrowes, Leslie Byck, Margaret Donnelley, Danielle Glendye, Ali Govier, Patti Hadden, Barbara Hollender, Eleanor Jones, Mary Lewis Moews, Toni O’Brien, Joan O’Connell, Kat Ogg, Dina Rubio, Eve Sauer, Lisa Shapiro, Marcie Singer and George Swan Jr. Auction committee members include Missy Agnello, Darcy Alasia, Patty Cooke and Pamela Pike.

The luncheon starts at 11:30 a.m. with a wine reception and a fabulous silent auction. During lunch, there will be a small live auction by Neil Saffer, while local CBS 12 News Anchor Liz Quirantes once again will serve as the celebrity emcee.

The proceeds benefit Grandma’s Place, a Royal Palm Beach nonprofit that provides shelter and loving care to children who have suffered abuse or neglect and have been removed from their homes, and also provides respite care for young children with disabilities while offering support to their parents/caregivers to maximize each child’s safety and success.

Tickets are $200 per person, or tables can be purchased for $2,000 each. To receive an invitation, donate an auction item, purchase a ticket or sponsor the event, contact Roxanne Jacobs at (561) 376-0488 or, or visit
